I have been employed as a cartographer in the department since September 2002.  My primary responsibilities include management of day to day operations in the Cartography Lab, support of faculty needs for classroom and research graphics, as well as design and production of  cartographic products for both on- and off-campus clients.  Off-campus clients include government agencies and non-for-profit organizations.  I currently work with Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and ArcMap software (click here to see our award winning maps).  I also serve as the department’s Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU) advisor, and teach GEOG 467 (Workshop in Cartography).

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading, biking, hiking and traveling.
